Tactics for Freedom of Speech

The Tactics for Freedom of Speech workshop looked at freedom of speech and the role of media as an infrastructure forming societies and constructing inter-territorial roles and positions. The workshop aimed to draft practices that can be used in conditions where freedom of expression is limited. The workshop focused on examples from Belarus, also looking at the challenges journalists and media face elsewhere, like in Narva and in Eastern Estonia.

Seeds, Pollen, Future

Seeds, Pollen, Future
The aim of the Seeds, Pollen, Future workshop is to nurture, form, grow, and become more aware of connections that are already there and those that are newly forged. What are we except for a living relation? And what does this imply for agency and identity?

Models and master plans are often used to illustrate growth-driven urban futures, but what would a model for degrowth look like?

Seeds, Pollen, Future

The aim of the Seeds, Pollen, Future workshop is to nurture, form, grow, and become more aware of connections that are already there and those that are newly forged. First of all, the connection that we have with ourselves; with our feet, our wonderful giving and taking hands, our eyes, our nostrils, the deep part of our tongue. But also those with other humans, plants and phenomena such as sunshine and rain. As well as the connections across disciplines and modes of knowing. Erotic and aesthetic dimensions of our experience, I feel, are important in this process, and play a big role in claiming an embodied, living place, where we can be both within and without. What are we except for a living relation? And what does this imply for agency and identity?

At the end of the Spring School week the Seeds, Pollen, Future workshop group did a performance.

Linda Boļšakova
My practice explores the human relationship with the environment and draws parallels between human embodiment and other material embodiments, especially those of plants. It aims to expose these connections and participate in developing a stronger sense of belonging to ecosystems and to the larger community of beings that mutually inhabit our planet.

How do the changing perceptions of territorial relationships, the experiences of belonging to a place, the multiple spatial layers of history, and their connection to human and non-human agencies shape abilities to imagine futures? What are the possible roles and structures of educational institutions that could develop the necessary skills and knowledge of political imagination?
